The city of Arles France



Places to visit and stay in the old city of Arles photos and guide

Arles is a town in the south of France, in the former Provence region.

It is the perfect place to wander around with its narrow streets.

Old shops,cafes and restaurants. The old church of St Trophime just off place de la Republique

In the town you can find several good antique shops.

We came down in the car but if you want to fly you can find some good deals on flights here

One of the advantages of having a car is you can visit the nearby Camargue. Just up the river from Arles the Rhône river splits into two forming the Camargue delta.


Langlois Bridge Arles


Langlois Bridge picture


The bridge in the photo is the Langlois Bridge that featured in a painting by Van Gogh.

The painter stayed in the town in 1888 and produce a large number of paintings.

There is a marked walk taking you around all the places Van Gogh visited.

There are two more marked walks one takes you to the Roman locations, and the other is to the medieval parts of town.
